    With this pandemic still around (hopefully we will have found a vaccine by then), understandably people will err on the side of caution. But perhaps this year, with smaller gatherings, we can take a moment to look back at Christmas' past and temporarily travel back in our minds and hearts. Traditions however, do not have to be put on pause due to unforeseen circumstances. The dinners may be only for a few versus many, but they can still have the same contents if we desire. I do believe that one positive will be time. Time to relax, time to fully appreciate the season, time to reflect and most importantly... time to look ahead.
    "Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps, means a little bit more!"

    On my side, it's going to be an incomplete family reunion (but that's okay)!
    Some of us cannot travel back to our parents' house with all the safety rules in place.

    Thanks to technology, we're going to be 'broadcasting' gatherings at different places on the big screen TV (I hope it works out well).
    Though I doubt we'd be too engaged physically to care about what's happening on the other side (the TV) xD

    We have friend suppliers for Christmas food and turkey too (because it's hard to get one in the stores), which we normally book 3-6 months before Christmas.
    We only hope that the supplier is able to get them in time.

    At best, we are going to have 6 of us, instead of a regular 11-ish.
    Well, I guess we'll just make it as warm as we can, with what we have now.

    As long as the Spirit is there, it can still be one for the memory books. We are going to make a scrapbook page (with copies) and call it "A COVID Christmas to Remember"...

    Both holidays will be heavily impacted for us. I have to say that I am interested to see how I will do. We have collectively decided to only do gifts for the kids in the family this year, which will be strange. And while it's always nice seeing everyone, and togetherness is a big part of the season, I'm also wondering if it will be a reset and make us appreciate things more. I'm looking forward to peacefulness and I trust my Christmas Spirit will be burning bright!

    We bought our turkey in July and it's taking up too much room in the freezer!
    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.
